AFC Championship Preview: Patriots @ Broncos

For the third straight season, the New England Patriots are back in a position where they want to be: a win away from the Super Bowl. The Patriots were able to take care of business last Saturday night in a 43-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts. They were able to win in an unconventional Patriot […]


Round Table: Blount Force Trauma

What has gotten into LeGarrette Blount and can he sustain this level of production as the season comes to a finale? Raj: I think it's finally hit Blount that he is a New England Patriot who is only a win away from NJ and two wins away from winning it all. We all know (or hopefully should know) […]

Round Table: Final Four

Rank the four remaining teams from least likely to most likely to raise the Lombardi when it's all said and done.  Explain why? Jason: My least likely team is the Seahawks. Russell Wilson is going to be an excellent quarterback as he continues to learn and grow, but a signal-caller can't throw the ball to himself. […]

Round Table: Confidence Boost

What makes you feel the most confident about the Patriots in Sunday's matchup? Raj: They're coming into this game as determined underdogs. We never think of or see the Patriots as underdogs. Well, we do now, but it's a good thing. That creates a strong fire within them that pushes them to desire the ultimate dream: hoisting the lombardi […]

NFL Pick ‘Em Championship Weekend

And just like that, Jason managed to take the lead in the waning moments of this season-long game.  Rick has been in the lead nearly the entire year, but Jason's perfect 4-0 record last week put him over the top.  This week, it all comes down to Pats/Broncos.  If Denver wins, Jason will have a […]

Round Table: Biggest Concern

What's your biggest concern for the Patriots as they head into Denver? Raj: The altitude. Denver is 5280 ft, better known as 1 mile, above sea level. It's somewhat difficult for the visiting players to breathe in that. That's why you always see more oxygen masks on the visiting sideline. If the Patriots fly out tonight, then it […]

Opening Lines: Conference Championships

The Patriots opened as 5-point underdogs as they visit the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game. If you listen to the oddsmakers, this is where the train stops for the Pats. You’d probably have to go back to Super Bowl XXXVI to find a game where the Pats gave up more than 3.5, even […]

One More Zag: Risers and Fallers

I can't count the number of times where I've mentioned just how proud I am of this Patriots team.  Their resliency and determination is downright inspiring.  To go 12-4 after overcoming a horrendous run of injuries to key players on both sides of the ball, is not just a monumental accomplishment for Bill Belichick as […]

AFC-Championship-Bound Patriots Gallop Over Colts

Good evening Patriots fans! I think most of you will read this in the morning when you wake up but if you’re reading this now, thanks for staying up! I hope you all watched the New England Patriots take it to the Indianapolis Colts in front of a sold out Gillette Stadium on a warm […]

Playoff Preview: Patriots vs. Colts

After a bye week, the New England Patriots will get their first taste of playoff action this Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts (8:15 ET, CBS). The bye week gave players such as cornerback Aqib Talib, left tackle Nate Solder, and safety Devin McCourty a chance to get healthy. However, the injury bug came back to Foxboro as […]


Round Table: Rivalry Renewed?

The Patriots and Colts have had some epic clashes in the past.  Do you feel the rivalry renewed with this Andrew Luck-led team, or was the Patriots/Colts rivalry really more about Brady vs. Manning? Rick:  The historic rivalry between the Patriots and the Colts was solely centered around Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. You could […]

Round Table: Losing Spikes

With Brandon Spikes now added to the ridiculously long list of Patriots on IR, how will his loss affect the Patriots post-season run? Jason:  For weeks, I've been saying that the Pats are one additional serious injury away from falling apart. We're going to see if I'm right against the Colts. But even if they […]


Round Table: Et Tu Deion?

What is your take on the recent signing of Deion Branch by the Colts? Rick:  The recent signing of Deion Branch is more than just a gamesmanship play by Ryan Grigson and company. People forget that back in December when LaVon Brazill got hurt, Indy brought in Branch for a private workout. So, this isn’t just […]
